Diana Barrios Trevino

This recipe is one that the Barrios-Treviño family looks forward to ever year at Thanksgiving. A touch of almond extract in the recipe is the “secret” ingredient that helps make this dish a standout. To watch a video of Diana Barrios Treviño making this dish, click here.

2 cups mashed, cooked sweet potatoes
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups sugar
